We knew very little about Venice when we booked up. Hotel was in Cannareggio are and we were about 20 mins walk from railway station and 10 minutes to Rialto. Main street is Strada Nuova and has a good selection of shops bars and eateries...More

From the bridge it looks like a colorful fun place. Inside it is not very historical or pretty except for the Scula Rocco and it's church along with the Feri church next door. Do not miss them!

To be honest you feel a bit industrial in this side but its still unique as whole venice for your daily sunny walk. Good place to start a gondola tour

We stayed in this area and it was nice and quiet and away from the main touristy areas. It's near enough and the main attractions are not too far either by Water bus or on foot. There are quiet bars and restaurants on either side...More

We visited the Cannaregio to go Kayaking. It is more of a locals area so itis less crowded, quiet with nice cafes along the canals. We really enjoyed it..

We are walkers, and armed with a map, we took several long strolls through this largest section of the cities. This is not a tourist crowded area, and we were able to witness every-day life in this great city. Be prepared to get lost once...More

Our hotel was on Carnnaregio and we were happy to discover some nice eateries and alleyways to explore. Carnnaregio is blessed with a large resident population, so it’s a great haven from the crowds. The island is conveniently located and served by several vaporetto stops....More

We decided to stay a little out the main area as this was our second visit to Venice and didn't want the bustle. I'm so glad we chose this area, it felt so much more Venetian, even though it was still pretty busy it was...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

Hi. I’ve been in Venice two months ago and also stayed in Cannaregio . The best thing of staying there is that you are 5m on foot from the Fondamenta nove, where you can board in a boat that can take you to the islands. I’ve... More

One more thought. For Christmas eve it may be very advisable to reserve a dinner in a restaurant (and see through internet if it is open). Otherwise it may happen that you will not find any place available. All can be fully... More

Hi Thanks for your question. Venice is not cheap but there are ways to save money. Walk everywhere as it is compact city and you miss a lot by going by boat. Eat in the smaller tucked away restaurants. Use the buses... More
